He asked me for a dollar
I said go get a job
And I turned down my collar
He started walking on
He said I don't blame you
And I know what you think
I'll just take your money
And buy another drink

But you don't know Jack
Double shoot
80 proof
On the rocks
Till you've lost it all
And you keep go back
To your life
And your kids
And your ex-wife
With just a telephone card
If you think is just a bottle
In an old brown paper sack
Then you don't know Jack

And he showed me a picture
Of two little girls
In their Easter dresses
Hair down in the curls
He said God bless their mama
She said I couldn't stay
But if you were wondering
I've fooled her all the way

You don't know Jack
Double shoot
80 proof
On the rocks
Till you've lost it all
And you keep go back
To your life
And your kids
And your ex-wife
With just a telephone card
If you think is just a bottle
In an old brown paper sack
Then you don't know Jack

If you never felt a fire
Running through your veins
If you've never seen the devil
Face to face
You don't know Jack
Double shoot
80 proof
On the rocks
Till you've lost it all
So brother just be glad
And tonight
Hold your kids
Love your wife
And when you talk to God
Count up all your blessings
And thank the Good Lord back
You don't know Jack
No you don't know Jack

    You can't get back what you lost over alcohol... Some people don't realize what they have lost until it's too late
